    Amazing place to work... where the words Work Family actually make sense!

    Legal Assistant (Current Employee)
    Santa Barbara, CA

    ProsGreat work environment. You are never made to feel like you're less than competent simply because you don't know how to do something. Questions are answered with genuine desire to help and inform. Open communication is a very real thing at Cooley. Various fun-filled work events are held often.

    ConsNone so far that I can think of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue open communication between staff and attorneys. It feels great to feel like part of the team!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good people

    Associate (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood people, highly respected firm, opens doors to interesting law careers. The work can be interesting but can also be boring, just depends. Some interesting tech clients. Good out of office culture.

    ConsHaving to bill in 6 minute increments is a fact of life in big law firms. Bummer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company to work for. Always felt like one big family.

    Web Systems Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsNationwide firm, excellent benefits, fantastic salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the vision and values from the Cooley Godward days!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
